Not sure if this is a good way to start with Kate, Notrap. To get familiar at a minimum, I'd invite you to try Hounds of Love or The Kick Inside before this.

I know some of their work, specially The Kick Inside.
I will check 50 Words for Snow asap.

I'm glad that people are enjoying this as much as me. "Snowflake" will probably make my top 20 songs of the year list.

There are some awesome moments in the album, but some tracks seems too long. That's my first time with Kate Bush, better to give her some more chances before any rating.

Indeed. Also, this isn't the best introductory album. I suggest you check out Hounds of Love.

I'm not sure if you're using colons right? Also, I'm sure a lot of people could argue that she isn't the most influential pop artist of all time. Making such a bold claim in your first sentence kinda seemed odd.

Other than that, though, sentences like this...

More than anything though, 50 Words For Snow works well as something minimal; unlike other releases, Bush really fixates on the inclusion of negative space to make way for drafty ambiance


...really make your reviews a joy to read. You really have a way with words, and much of the things you write end up being rather beautiful. Very, very nice review, Matt.

''I'm sure a lot of people could argue that she isn't the most influential pop artist of all time''

Of all time? Maybe not.
What about these who come to the top of my head;
Bjork
Tori Amos
Bat for Lashes
Fiona Apple
Sarah Slean
Paula Cole
Holly Cole
Sarah McLachlin
Joanna Newsom

The point is, there isn't a tangible way to prove that she is, so it's a big, bold statement right at the beginning of the review. I'm probably just being silly.

No you don't. I personally think she is incredibly original and above all, a pioneer when it comes to prog pop.

Oddly enough I too believe that she probably is the most influential. 35 years later and she's still making music that's original and challenging. Very cool.

I could see you digging this, Nag. Different from our habitual Kate Bush. Dreamy, seducting and absorbing. Don't forget to listen to Hounds of Love for a perfect trio.
